By All Means, Let's Waste Money We Don't Have on Sheila Jackson Lee's Anti-Bullying Bill

We’re borrowing from China to deal with bullies on American schoolyards.

The House is expected to approve legislation as early as Monday that would provide grant money to states to fight bullying at schools.

“It is time for us to stand together and stop bullying,” said Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), the sponsor of the bill. “Everyone deserves to feel safe and free from persecution.

Everyone but Republican candidates and their own families in their own homes, of course. For them, bullying is a Democrat family value.

Democrats have no credibility on the subject of bullying, full stop. Without bullying, they would hardly win any elections.

“Bullying is not just a schoolyard anymore, it is a crisis that’s taking over our nation,” she said.

Yeah, it took over our nation in 2008.

In addition, she noted that cyberbullying makes it easier for bullies to torment people outside of school.

“Gone are the days that children can come home and seek solace and escape from their bullies; technological advances have made it easy for young people to be tormented on social networks at any time from any place,” she said. “They are never out of harm’s reach. This needs to end.”

If Lee thinks bullying is bad now, wait until China comes around demanding all its money back.
